Computers in Bilingual Education, Project CIBE, 1987-88. Evaluation Section Report. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Alvarez, Rosalyn
Computers in Bilingual Education (Project CIBE) was fully implemented at South Bronx High School in its fourth year of federal funding. During the 1987-88 school year, students received computer-assisted and classroom instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), social studies, mathematics, science, computer literacy, and word processing. Project CIBE served 343 limited-English-proficient Spanish-speaking students at South Bronx High School. Students met 3 of the program's 4 objectives (for ESL, NLA, and the content area objective for ESL, but not for the other subject areas). The program met its objectives for computer-assisted instruction, staff development, curriculum development, and parental involvement. The most effective program element appeared to be computer literacy. Recommendations for program improvement include development of alternative techniques for greater success in teaching advanced ESL students and in teaching bilingual content area subjects. (MSE)
